Scots to Investigate Link Between Wind Farms & Insomnia, Dizziness, & Raised Blood Pressure Following Complaints

Nick Hallett — — August 10, 2014

The Scottish government has commissioned a report into the health effects of wind farms at 10 sites across the country, following concerns that many people may be suffering from the effects of infrasound emitted from the turbines.

The Sunday Express reports that campaigners are concerned that the low frequency sounds produced may be causing people living nearby to suffer headaches, nausea, insomnia, dizziness and raised blood pressure.
Andrew Vivers, a former Army captain, said that he has suffered from various symptoms since the Ark Hill wind farm was built near his home in Glamis, Angus. Authorities have so far failed to accept the effects infrasound has on health, he says, despite it being a “known military interrogation aid and weapon”.

“When white noise was disallowed they went on to infrasound. If it is directed at you, you can feel your brain or your body vibrating,” he explained. “With wind turbines, you don’t realise that is what’s happening to you.”
“It is bonkers that infrasound low frequency noise monitoring is not included in any environmental assessments. It should be mandatory before and after turbine erection.”

Explaining the effects the turbines have had on his own health, Mr Vivers added: “I was getting these headaches and dizziness and just not sleeping, but I was putting it all down to all sorts of other things. A couple of times I was walking on the hills around the house with my dogs and got a really bad dizzy spell.

“I actually had to sit down for a few minutes and while I was sitting down wondering what on earth was wrong with me, I did notice the wind was coming straight from the turbines.”

He added that he has also seen an “incredible number” of dead hares on the surrounding moors and believes they have suffered “internal haemorrhaging and death” due to the turbines.

“If this coming winter is going to be anything like the last and with the plans to build a second wind farm much closer to us, I think we’ll have to sell our home and move elsewhere,” he said.  Continue reading here…..
